In 2007 the Bettendorf Jaycees closed its local chapter. Shortly afterwards the TGBCF started to continue with most of the local community service projects of the former Jaycees. In March of 2016 a group of exceptional ladies approached the Board of Directors with an idea to fill a gap that they felt was not being met by our local community services. That gap was to provide needed items that families would need that food assistance did not provide for. Clothing, household items, personal care products, baby items, and furniture were now going to become available at no cost to anyone in need.The AGAPE Center Project was then created and the doors to the Center opened on May 1st, 2016. As expected the Center started off slowly; it was going to take a bit of time to get the word out to those in need. Shortly after the first few guests came through the door, the question of "Do you provide food as well?" was asked. We at that point contacted the River Bend Foodbank for their guidance on how we could participate as a participating pantry. For the River Bend Foodbank this was a very unusual request.
